Hi, my name is Kim McAllister and I am a qualified counsellor who specialises in child and adult play therapy and Person-Centred counselling for any age from 5+. I am passionate about mental health and providing tailored therapy for both children and adults. I volunteer at Counselling in the Community because I believe they offer a superb, professional service to clients and truly care about those who use the service.

I have over two years experience in schools as a child counsellor and find utilising play therapy provides an excellent platform to engage with even the shyest of children. Allowing young people to play with whatever they choose and involving my inner child when playing alongside them provides an excellent opportunity to see the world through their eyes. Play therapy also works with anxious adults and those who are uncomfortable sitting and conversing with a stranger.
